PASTA IN SPICY TOMATO AND SALMON SAUCE
This is a super quick and healthy supper that satisfies the parts you want to reach when you are famished. You can use rigatoni or penne or really any shape of pasta you feel passionate about – or have hanging around!
INGREDIENTS FOR 4
6 tbsps olive oil
2 garlic cloves peeled and finely chopped
1 red chilli deseeded and chopped – if you want more heat – then use 2
2 x 400gm chopped tinned tomatoes
Small bunch of coriander leaves chopped
400 gm salmon fillet skinned and cut into cubes
500 gm of pasta
Pinch of salt
In a wok or large frying pan, heat the oil and then gently sizzle the garlic and chilli for about a minute. Do not burn it! Best way is once it is sizzling just remove it from the heat for a minute – works fine. Add the chopped tomatoes and stir and simmer gently for 10 minutes uncovered.
Carefully stir in the salmon pieces and season with a pinch of salt. Remove from heat whilst the pasta cooks. Drain the pasta then and return to the pan, pour in the salmon sauce and stir over a low heat for 30 seconds or so.
This is a super summer supper dish or a lazy lunch perfect with a glass of rosé or a crisp white.
